I swear we do more then eat around here but I guess not much of it has been picture worthy this week. I've also been in a real cooking/baking mood lately so I've been trying some new recipes and photographing the "keepers" so I can remember them.
Mexican pizza. Evan loves it so much he's cheering for it. Tortilla cooked until crunchy in a skillet topped with taco meat, cheese, and sour cream.
Jon used the griddle for his and added salsa and hot sauce to his pizzas.
I used up what I had in the fridge... refried beans, leftover venison roast, corn, roasted carrots, and avocados. It was delicious!
Mega Salad with thinned hummus as dressing. I have romaine lettuce, spinach, carrots, asparagus, broccoli, cucumbers, hard boiled egg, and avocado. Very, very good...
The next day I had a mega salad and a roasted sweet potato for lunch. It made for a very delicious, filling lunch.
Pizza and Movie night. we watched Batman (with Michael Keaton). I had forgotten how cartoony that movie was. It was the perfect family movie for us. Evan still can't stop talking about it.
This weekend we started packing for our trip to PA for Thanksgiving/Christmas. The kids wrapped presents. It's so nice that they're old enough to really help get ready for big trips.
I made some cranberry applesauce with oranges.
It's beautiful but a bit tart since I didn't add any sweetener.
Roasted sweet potatoes. Sweet potatoes were $.29/lb. this weekend so I bought a lot of them. I roasted a pan of them, sliced them in half, and froze them so I can thaw them and reheat them for a lunch side dish anytime I want. I LOVE sweet potatoes.
I bartered with Jon's Aunt Cheryl... knit socks for pottery. She sent me a 4 piece apple baker set. They're beautiful. I tried one out the other night with an empire apple (my favorite for cooking) topped with coconut oil, a little honey, and cinnamon.
It was very, very good! I'll definitely be making more baked apples in the future!
Chocolate chip scones (using all whole wheat pastry flour and fewer choc. chips... but don't tell the kids... they loved them anyway!)
